June 15, 2022 Hive Check

Hive check on new packages hived on Bee Day this year. They went into boxes with drawn comb. Nectar flows are on so they aren’t taking sugar water. Some are ready for honey supers! Kirk walks you through hive checks on 4 colonies. Some patchy brood due to the cold rainy weather we’ve had. He shows you to look for pollen, capped honey, supercedure cells, etc. Some talk of varroa, checking drone brood for varroa. Really will start looking in July for varroa though.
